Cleveland author Deanna Adams visits NWOWF

The Northwest Ohio Writers’ Forum (NWOWF) holds their next monthly meeting Saturday, April 18, 2009, from 10:00AM to Noon, at the Sylvania Branch Library, 6749 Monroe St., in Sylvania, OH.

Memoir and essay writing, and ideas for immersing readers in your experiences will be the topic.

Cleveland writer and essayist Deanna Adams (author of Confessions of a Not-So-Good Catholic Girl) reflects on topics in which most baby boomers can relate, Catholic or otherwise. The title comes from one of the vignettes in this collection of stories about growing up in Northeast Ohio.

And although being Catholic is the thread that runs throughout the book, these coming-of-age stories are about family, relationships, and the legacies that are passed down from one generation to the next. And how faith can often save us from ourselves.

Deanna Adams grew up in the Greater Cleveland area. Her work has appeared in Ohio Magazine, Sesame Street Parents, The Plain Dealer, News-Herald, and others. She is a regular contributor to Northern Ohio Live, and Lake Erie Living magazines, and contributed to the 2007 compilation, The American Midwest.

Her first book, Rock `n' Roll and the Cleveland Connection (Kent State University Press, 2002), was a finalist for the 2003 Ohioana Book Award for nonfiction, and for the ARSC Award (Association of Recorded Sound Collections) for excellence in research. In addition to being a longtime freelance writer, she is director of the Western Reserve Writers’ Conference and the Women Writers’ Winter Retreat.

After the NWOWF meeting, Deanna will have a book signing/reading at People Called Women, located in Cricket West Shopping Center on Central Avenue, east of Secor Road. Deanna will read from her newest book, Confessions of a Not-So-Good Catholic Girl. The book signing begins at 1pm.

All meetings of the NWOWF are open to the public. Additional information about meetings and membership can be found at www.nwowf.com.
